some of you long term guys like myself might remember this. there was a post from someone on this board several years ago, when the stock was in the 4 dollar range, about the typical chart pattern for minning development stocks. The jest of it was that initially a stock is a basic penny stock then as excitement about discoveries creep in the stock rises, then 6 months to a year before production it craters then starts it rise again to outpace the previous highs. (this all in a nutshell). So far this stiock has done just that, let's hope that the prophectic post is proven totally correct.
